HMS Caroline – Belfast’s remarkable First World War ship – is set to welcome visitors on board for an adventure like no other during the Easter holidays as they step back in time to experience a dramatic life at sea more than one hundred years ago.

Now a must-see floating museum and one of Northern Ireland’s most remarkable and important historic attractions, HMS Caroline is where history comes alive – a compelling, fun-filled and fully immersive adventure where everything you see, touch and experience is refreshingly real and reassuringly unique.

The story of HMS Caroline is one of the most remarkable in sea-faring history – a twisting, turning maritime adventure like no other on board the sole survivor of the greatest sea battle of all time.

Everyone, from the youngest intrepid explorer to the most well-travelled aficionado, will love travelling back in time to this magical bygone maritime world, overflowing with nautical magic, charm and wonder.

The first port of call on board HMS Caroline is the Drill Hall, where a compelling cinematic interpretation of the momentous Battle of Jutland places visitors right at the heart of the action as one of the First World War’s most influential events unfolds before their very eyes.

Visitors then explore where the captain, officers and crew all lived, worked and played, while hearing their own extraordinary accounts of life on the ship. Hearts may skip a beat as they get up close to HMS Caroline’s jaw-dropping 40,000 horsepower engines, perfectly preserved just as they were when she was an active warship, powering her to an incredible top speed of 30 knots.

No visit to HMS Caroline is complete without following in the footsteps of Caroline’s historic crews by exploring the timeless decks and getting that all-important selfie next to the ship’s imposing battle guns!

HMS Caroline promises a hugely enjoyable and historically enriching experience. This preserved and fully restored First World War ship represents one of the last remaining examples anywhere in the world.

No visit to Belfast this Easter would be complete without paying a visit to HMS Caroline. The ship is woven into the fabric of the city’s maritime heritage, having been berthed here for one hundred years, serving as the Royal Navy’s Northern Ireland headquarters during the Second World War and as a naval training ship, before going on to become the second-longest serving ship in Royal Navy history.
